than 3% of the cost of silver here. i think that's pretty inexpensive way to make the bet. >> this makes all the sense in the world. if you look at the first chart, this is one of the few situations where a trader is happy to sell the bottom. why? if it goes through, it's going to go through by a ton. mike makes the case that there's asymmetry of risk. that it's likely to go down more than it's going to go up. he can buy puts inexpensively. we don't often by an outright put. but there's no reason to get cute and spread here when you can make a ton of money and you don't want to sell yourself short by selling a downside put. >> that is one of the worst looking charts in the planet. >> on the planet. >> get in there and just buy the put. >> one more time on stocks versus options. shorting stocks or etfs can ruin your portfolio and it can be painful. mike's put perch offers leverage to the down side and risks just $85. send us a tweet at cnbc options. we'll answer it right after the show. yes, options action has been revamped. you'll find great trader blocks, educational mate

at 16% will be somewhere between 4 and $6 billion. this will be a very large bet for one, two, three, four principals going forward and invariably you need to have a lot of people aligned to pull off a deal of this size. against that backdrop, you have a pretty risky environment in the sense that pcs are going through a lot of change right now. so while the valuation of dell stock is pretty darn attractive and i understand the rationale in this low interest rate environment to want to do a deal, because the deal is so large and there's uncertainty around dell's pc core business, i think when push comes to shove, the deal does not get done. >> i want to underscore one of the top rated analysts doesn't think that it's going to happen. shares are moving a little bit higher. stocks almost 23% at this point. obviously had that huge move yesterday. where does that leave the company's future, toni? what are they going to do? >> look, i think the company has been very deliberate in laying out a strategy, which is, we're going to try and move away from pcs. we're going to take our cash and bu
